Trying to get a few numbers off the bands worn by the female Bald Eagle has been a real challenge to say the least.  I just cannot get her to turn her leg for me to get a clear shot.  However, she did show me just how far an eagle can rotate it's head.

Did you know that an Eagle can rotate it's head about 180 degrees?  They have 14 cervical vertebrae as opposed to we humans who have a mere 7 cervical vertebrae giving us the ability to rotate a mere 70-90 degrees to either side.

I didn't know this. Wow,she looks headless in the last shot. So if you manage to see the band numbers, would you know what they mean?

Hello,
Amazing photos, it is good to stretch those neck muscles.
Have a great day!

Good try JP. Depending upon the numbers and sequence, it may still be possible to trace your eagle. Email your US branding scheme.
Just learned something new about eagles in this post, JP. Hope you can get a clear view of those band numbers, but not an easy task for sure.

how rude of her..... Hahaha

Do you have a spotting scope? Would be an aid in getting that reference from the bands... if of course she decides to turn for you.

Of course she is just beautiful isn't she
